The good part about long weekends is a chance to do some reading catch up - and I've been trying to get this book to the top of the stack for ages now.
From the Blurb:
Torn was a pretty average sort of kid, as far as kids go, but as he grabbed his lucky red cap, flew up the stairs two at a time, and scoffed his pancakes that morning, he had absolutely no idea of how un-average his day was going to be. His Mum was taking him to see someone who, for Torn, was probably the most coolifying person in the whole world.
He was going to see his hero.
